Verification of Your Gmail Account

Just another quick warning – the scammers are at it again. Now its GMail accounts that they are targeting, and I suspect Hotmail and YahooMail accounts as well. Remember folks, these companies already have your information, and don’t need it again.

As a result of congestion of all Gmail users and removal of all unused accounts, Google would have to close some Gmail accounts that are not on our new database software. This is to enhance better performance and protection against spy wares and spams. You must confirm your e-mail account details by filling in your log in information below, in case where the form is not fully completed your account will be suspended within 48 hours for security reasons.

Email Address:
Confirm Password:
First and last Name:
Date of Birth:

For your information: Gmail Account Team will turn off your Account features, and you will no longer be able to access the Account. To make this move easier for you, we have listed the required information above for correspondence and for us to confirm that you truly own this Account. Thanks for taking the time to read this email and for using Google Service.

  1. Holy creepy! I would have totally fallen for that! I don’t think I would have hesitated for one minute. Maybe over the birth date. But I’m not sure. This message didn’t have any errors. How are we supposed to know when something is a real message or not?
